Re: VOTE today! And is the Federation a democracy?

Kirk did say the the federation is a democracy (to Kor)
Even this is slightly overstating the case. What Kirk said in "Errand of Mercy" was actually "we are a democratic body", and even though Kor spoke of the Federation previously, it might be Kirk speaks of a subset of the UFP because that gives him a better-sounding argument.

It's sort of funny that Picard never preached the virtues of a representative democracy...
